Remembrance Day

The eleventh day the eleventh month. It's a memorable combination of day and month, originally marking the cessation of hostilities in the Great War which sadly came to called later the FIRST World War.

I wrestled with some modest success today and have removed from my piano its keyframe and its 88 keys. The whole assembly will sit on the back seat of the car on Monday, to be taken to Robin the Piano Man in Port Pirie. He will replace the key-tops which have warped and when it's done he will bring the thing home, reinstall the bits and pieces, and tune the instrument.

The male voices of our little group have been augmented from one back all the way to three, with Denis returned from hospital and Don returned from the Silver City of Broken Hill.
